Everyone is different...
Someone's challenging ride is another one's gentle meander, and so all of our grades are somewhat subjective! With this in mind, we've put together our grading system so that you have all of the information necessary, so that you can choose the perfect trip for you.
Why are grades important?
Choosing a holiday of the right grade and making sure you are prepared means you will really be able to make the most of the cycling opportunities on your chosen trip. Alongside the grades, each holiday has its own set of trip notes, which includes a Terrain section, and further information on the riding itself. These two aspects combine to give a pretty good insight into what to expect, so that you can comfortably enjoy the ride.
So...How do we do it?
Every single one of our cycling holidays is carefully graded by our team of experts. All of our holidays are graded based on a variety of factors, including the following important cycling features:
- The daily distances
- The amount of hills (or lack thereof) you’ll have to conquer
- The nature of the terrain you’ll be exploring
- Holiday or destination specific features that may increase the difficulty of the ride (e.g. Altitude, heat etc.)
How to pick the right grade
Each category of cycling has its own specific grading system, so we can accurately let you know how one stacks up against another. For more specific information about each grade, please click on your preferred type of cycling below:
